Bike Friday is a brand of high performance travel, commuter, and folding bicycle made by Green Gear Cycling of Eugene, Oregon, United States. The company also builds tandem bicycles,[1] cargo bikes,[2] bicycles that adjust to different sizes,[3] and custom bicycles for people with short stature.[4]

Hardware[edit]

The Bike Friday travel bike emphasizes riding characteristics rather than foldability. It packs into a suitcase and "rides like your best bike" according to Ed Pavelka, former senior editor of Bicycling magazine. The company history says they sought to invent a packable bicycle that rode well over serious distances, loaded or unloaded, to save airline baggage fees.

The range includes tandems, triplets, road, mountain and touring models, a freight bicycle, and a bicycle that adjusts in sizing. Each fits into one or two standard suitcases that can be converted to a towable trailer.

Most Bike Fridays are built to order, and all are built in their Eugene factory.[5]
